Please cheeck my answer thanks :)

Dr. Smith is sued for malpractice. When called to give testimony at trial, he will be allowed to testify about the patient's care.

I think that's True

The other choices were...

be barred for revealing medical information about the patient's care.
---------------------------------------
not be permitted to take the witness stand.
----------------------------------------
be allowed to testify, but not about the patient's care

    Although I'm not a lawyer, I assume you are correct. If the patient has sued the doctor for malpractice, the patient must have given up his/her right of privacy. The doctor has the right to testify about the patient's care in order to defend him/herself.

    thanks ") I thought that as well if you are suing then the doctor should have a right to defend him/herself
